Controversial artiste, Habeeb Okikiola, professionally known as Portable, has revealed that the money he earned from his breakout single, ‘Zazuu Zeh’ did not exceed N3 million.
The street-hop singer said he wa ripped off by people in the industry because he was still up-and-coming and did not realise how things work in the Nigerian entertainment scene.
He hit the limelight in December 2021 after Poco Lee introduced him to rapper, Olamide who then hopped on the remix of Zazuu.
The singer was interviewed on The Echo Roon where he talked about all the things he endured in the first few months as a bubbling artiste.
Portable said he has been defrauded of of N5million and N3million by different people who wanted to exploit him at the time.
He said the N3 million he made from Zazuu when it was a trending song is what he used to buy his his Toyota Camry.
According to him, the reason he could not make more than that amount is because he single handedly took care of everybody on the team which includes a manager, promoter and their own workers.
He said that he would fuel the promoter’s car, feed him and also take care of his boys, adding that anytime he visits a boutique to buy clothes, they would follow him, and he’d buy for them as well.
